Located in Chatham in Kent, Kitchener Barracks from St Arthur Homes is due to launch this month. 

Featuring precision-engineered 3D modular technology, St Arthur Homes’ collection of Shared Ownership properties at Kitchener Barracks has been built in partnership with leading 3D modular housebuilder, TopHat. The average energy consumption of a TopHat home is 30% lower than average across its lifetime, so buyers will benefit from exceptional energy-efficiency and reduced running costs. 

Buyers at Kitchener Barracks can enjoy a contemporary new home on a site boasting a rich military heritage, with the 300-year-old Napoleonic Fortress, Fort Amherst positioned at the entrance of the gated community. Comprising a collection of 32 one- and two-bedroom homes, each home has been carefully designed with buyers in mind. Created with patented technology and precision-engineering techniques, enhanced levels of insulation in each property ensures homes will be cheaper to heat in the winter months. Spacious kitchens feature a selection of high-quality, integrated appliances. Primary bedrooms come complete with a mirrored sliding wardrobe and an en-suite bathroom to two-bedroom apartments. Complete with Luvanto laminate flooring and soft carpeting throughout, each apartment also benefits from its own outdoor space in the form of a large private balcony. The development also benefits from parking spaces on-site, as well as a car club.

Louise Mills, sales and marketing director at St Arthur Homes, comments: “We are delighted to be preparing for the launch of our Shared Ownership homes at Kitchener Barracks. Working alongside TopHat, these 3D modular homes are able to provide high-quality and sustainable properties at an affordable price. Located on a site with great historic significance, buyers will have a unique opportunity to purchase a home that benefits from lower running costs whilst also being surrounded by centuries of military heritage. With this in mind, we anticipate high demand for these properties and would urge prospective purchasers to register their interest as soon as possible.”
